How do I get started?
To start the Dragon Slayer quest, you must first have 32 quest points. Once you have this amount, you can visit the Guildmaster in the Champion’s Guild and ask if he has a quest available.
The Guildmaster will then tell you to speak to Oziach in Edgeville. He’s right next to the Wilderness wall.
Oziach will tell you that he wants you to kill a green dragon called Elvarg, located on Crandor island.
After speaking to Oziach, you must return to the Champion’s Guild to speak to the Guildmaster again. If you have the Chronicle, use it to teleport straight there.
The Guildmaster will tell you that you must find three pieces of a map to locate Crandor island, as well as a boat to travel there and a shield to protect you from Elvarg’s fire damage.
Make sure you ask the Guildmaster every question available, otherwise the quest will not be progressed.
You can get a free anti-dragon shield from Duke Horacio in Lumbridge. Find him on the 1st floor of the Lumbridge castle. Alternatively, just purchase one from the Grand Exchange.

How do I get a boat?
After you get the three map pieces, you will need to find a boat to travel to Crandor island. Getting the boat will be easier than the map pieces, especially if you already have the recommended items we mentioned earlier. If not, you can purchase them from the Grand Exchange.
Follow the steps below to get the boat for the Dragon Slayer quest:
- Put 90 steel nails, 3 planks, 2,000 gold, and 1 hammer into your inventory.
- Go to the Port Sarim dock and speak to Klarense.
- Choose the fourth speech option, then the first.
- You must pay 2,000 gold to Klarense for a boat.
- Enter your new boat and go down the ladder.
- Repair the hole three times.
How do I fight Elvarg?
Once you have the map pieces in your inventory and your boat is fixed up, you will need to speak to Captain Ned in Draynor.
Before you do, make sure you have your anti-dragon shield, armor, and food/equipment to fight Elvarg.
You can find Captain Ned in a small house on the Eastern side of Draynor village. Speak to Captain Ned and you’ll be able to ask him to be your captain.
Once he agrees, return to your ship in Port Sarim. You’ll find Captain Ned on the boat. Speak to him again. A cutscene will play and you’ll watch your ship travel towards Crandor.
To kill Elvarg once you land on the island, follow the steps below:
- Climb to the top of the volcano on Crandor.
- Enter the hole at the top of the volcano.
- Move south and you will find Elvarg.
- Make sure you have your anti-dragon shield equipped.
- If you have Antifire potions, use them periodically to minimize the fire damage further.
